    When I brought my 1st rev MacBook in for that same issue, I was told that once the battery gets so many charge cycles under its belt it is essentially spent. I currently get 2 minutes of charge on my battery, if I am lucky.

    forgot i had my brothers computer here. so i took his battery and put it in mine and everything was fine. he has 897 cycles and it shows 93% life left. that sucks for me. mine in his computer wouldn't run either so i guess the battery is shot. will have to go to the store and hopefully they will replace it.
    thanks

    My battery was only lasting about 10 minutes before my computer turned off. I called Apple and they replaced my AC Adapter and Battery free of charge even though my warranty ran out months ago.
